Honestly, after this first quarter, this game is already decided and it just shows how the Cowboys are not ready for good teams, they have the players but the coaching just sucks.

It kinda looks like that, but just remember.........

 

the Vikings have Cousins as their QB, it's Sunday Night and the lights are bright. The Vikings are quite capable of erffing this one up.

I got to see a double dose of that after the Bears game. Lol. First the blocked Kansas City FG, and then the Bills miss. 

 

I have no idea why I said the Giants earlier when I meant the Bills. I have edited my post lol.

Yea, I try to be for my team (Cowboys) but it hard because of how bad the playcalling is. at least we don't have many players out

Well, whaddya know, the 'Boys have tied it up. Keep the faith, Yuna.

 

(I'm a Niner fan but I do have some serious cash on this one for the Cowboys).

Yup. Nice to see the Niners competitive again. Seattle and SF have had some epic battles in the past, maybe this one will be too.

I have high respect for Pete Carroll. (BTW We went to the same high school together.....Redwood High in Marin County California....he was a senior when I was a freshman).

 

The Niners have a tremendous pass rush..........but we've seen how a mobile playmaker like Kyler Murray (or Russell Wilson NFL MVP) can beat it.

 

But can the Hawks stop the Niner rushing game? I have my doubts.

 

(Niners stellar LB Kwon Alexander now out for the season and TE George Kittle is doubtful).

I am a Niners fan and have no love for the Packers or Rodgers, and certainly not for the Panthers (disliked them since their first season as an expansion team when they walked into the league with a stacked roster and beat my Niners in their first of 2 games, lol), but that Roughing the Passer call on Carolina D for a perfectly legit tackle of Rodgers in the endzone while he was trying to throw the ball away was complete BS.  It honestly could have been the catalyst that changed the outcome of that game.  And while I don't have a horse in that race, and the result doesn't matter to me either way, it's annoying to see how badly QBs are babied now.  If you don't want to take any kind of hit, run the ball, screen pass, quick out, run out of the pocket and throw the ball away faster, etc... there's so many options.  As fans, we don't need the refs calling personal fouls every time a defender looks cross-eyed at a QB.

NO SH*T? My Uncle and Aunt resided in Lucas Valley and my cousin still lives on Idylberry Drive.

 

The NFL will baby their stars (like Rodgers) just like the NBA babies theirs. Its all about the $$$. Its not right, it is what it is. Even in amateur sport, the repeating champion or star performer will always get the benefit of the doubt from the umpires/referees.

Damn tough loss for my Cowboys, just cannot not make this NFC East battle with Philly any closer . Though good win for the Vikings who stay 1 back on the packers. This probably is Cousins best or one of them wins with the Vikings

Yeah, it's a dumb thing for him to say even if it's technically true.  Let's try being better than 2-7 (2-4 in Sam's case) before we start with the flights of fancy.

 

Then again, if we pulverized an athlete or celebrity every time they looked into a camera/microphone and said something stupid, we'd be punching people from dawn 'til dusk and spending most of the night catching up anyhow.

This "full weight" foul is a joke, instituted off the back Rodger's whining and made worse by the incompetent refs this season whom can't seem to tell the difference between someone throwing their weight on someone and not.

 

This season is a joke. College football for me until playoffs

One of the worst calls I've seen. The official was RIGHT THERE. He had to have seen that the guy was turning his body. The whole "full weight" thing is a stupid ass rule to begin with, but there was nothing like that in the play.

Me, too. After a comedic start to the season for my Volunteers, they have really battled back. One more win means a bowl game, and for a team that lost to Georgia State at home to start the year, that's a great turnaround.

Got my money on San Fran tonight (unfortunately), 11 days of rest, at home, and oh yeah, they're the better team.  Kittle being doubtful has raised my hopes a touch but not enough to expect a win.  I'm also expecting a season split though.  The week 17 game Seattle should hopefully be able to pull off.  9ers week 4 bye could be slowing them down by then (although they pretty much had a mini-bye this last week), the game's in Seattle, for whatever that's worth this year, and who knows, by then the 9ers might not have anything left to play for.

 

Also, the Bears, Rams and either Cowboy or Eagles are looking like they could miss the playoffs entirely, how insane is that?

NFL Officiating Formula

Rodgers + Lambeau = Untouchable 

 

 

- As for the game last night, I'm glad the nation got to see a Good Kirk game. He's played well this season, minimized mistakes, and spreads the ball around. Is he a Championship-caliber QB? He'll never get to a chance to prove it if the Vikes secondary continues to play coverage like cardboard cut-outs. 

 Also happy for Dalvin Cook to shine in primetime. He's having a MVP-like year, though he surely won't win it. But it seems Ezekial Elliott gets all the pub, and it was nice to see Cook have a bigger game than him.

Actually, that is pretty normal.  The Patriots dynasty might make you think otherwise but there is normally about a 50% turnover each year in teams that make the playoffs.  The Bears were a trendy SB pick this year but they overachieved last year and are returning to where I thought they’d be.  Rams with the SB loser hangover.

yes, not quite as bad as the NBA, but stars get the calls.  Rodgers, Brady, Peyton Manning, etc. get them that other normal QBs never do.

 

ps - great game in Chapel Hill the other week 😉. Back and forth, think both secondaries have been ravaged by injury.  Sam Howell looks as good as Trubinsky did IMO but Bryce Perkins was a little too much that night.

K Robbie Gould is also doubtful for tonight's game....so expect the Niners to be aggressive on fourth down in Seattle territory.....you might even see a 2 point try. Kyler Murray, while harassed by the Niners pass rush, still managed to have a productive game. I would expect Russell Wilson to have even more success. Should be a fun game.

 

NFC likely playoff teams are SF, GB, NO, MN and SEA with either Philly or Dallas as sixth spot. Rams and Carolina still have a small chance. Forget about everybody else.

 

AFC likely playoff teams are Patriots and Ravens, and after that it's pretty wide open........with only the Broncos, Browns and Bengals without a reasonable hope. I'd put the Jets in that latter group but Sam Darnold insists that they are still in the hunt. The Bills currently stand as the fifth seed but are a complete fraud. Browns are simply not good enough to go 7-0 or 6-1 despite their remaining (weak) schedule.

 

The sixth seed might turn out to be a 9-7 team that wins it in the last week by tiebreaker.

🤔 Oops. Lloyd Christmas has a better chance with Mary Swanson than the Dolphins have for making the playoffs.

 

They are playing better, though. Chargers chances are pretty remote, too.

I'm 100% convinced Gurley's days are gone, and their offense has always seemed like they're only as good as he is.  I'm also wondering if Belichik showed the rest of the league how to shut them down.

Honest question, did they change the playoff seed ranking rules?  I know there was talk of changing it like the NBA did to go off record only and no longer put so much weight on winning a division, but I did a quick search and couldn't find any info.  I ask cause Philly and Dallas are the same division and under the old (current?) rules would still be guaranteed 4th place or better for the division win.  If they have changed the rules, then yey!  I really want to see that happen.  No longer do I want to see teams with 13+ wins in 5th place, and teams with 7 or 8 wins in the playoffs, it's complete BS.

 

Also, so far so good in tonight's game, hope the Niners keep it up!
